    Apparently this thing does run cool. Reset the max before going to bed, max was 30ºc.

    A while ago my 5770 had major issues from running the ram maxed out with crappy lil zalman heatsinks on the back ram ( seems the sticky stuff on them was more insulative ( spelling? is this even a word?) then conductive!)

    After going back to stock clocks it fixed it, but I missed having both sliders in catalyst maxed out so done this

    [​IMG]

    Looks like arse but works great, the heatsinks are stuck down using silicon thermal paste rather than double sided thermal tape, works much nicer : ]

    The big heatsink at the back of the card ( well bigger) is on two mosfets which I assume control the ram ( *shrugs*)

    Also note the rubber band around the silenx fan, me and my friend had to make clips out of paper clips to fit the 38mm fan to my heatsink XD rubber band adds tension to the clips to stop them coming off.



    Edit :

    So that's my 5770 @ 960/1445(5800mhz) ^_^

    Can do 1ghz core but difference is negligible, when I crap some copper heat-sinks I might try to get the ram to 6000mhz ^_^

    You know it :p

    I love ghetto modding things, this will be going on the mosfets of the card soon, just needs a few more adjustments : ]

    that should be a nice addition to the others Panther :D

    NZXT cables are sleeved. Just did not like the pci ex, are short, 10cm. The site says 20 but are not. Outside this are very well finished.

    Love it! I think I'm going to be getting a few of them fans.

    The reason my PSU is that way is because:

    [​IMG]

    Fig. 1) The PSU has holes ALL over it, so more hot air will be pushed into the case than outside the case,
    Fig. 2) The fan filter doesn't align with my fan!

    I'll be getting a HX 750 soon, hopefully that'll line up :laugh:

    @ Scam ah i see now why then yeah the hole is sort of misaligned with mine aswel not to badly though yeah they do sort of need an long PSU to really benefit properly but my typeR-580 only just misses and with an 140mm fan it's good enough

    @ PantherX12 OCZ make some very nice little Copper BGA sinks and you should always replace stock thermal tape with Sekisui 5760 its the best stuff around

    Cheers after some googling seems they don't sell them in the UK :laugh:

    Gona grab some of these instead ( £2.99 for 8)
    [​IMG]

    Going to put the spare ones on the sides of the stock heatsink, can drop temps up to 8c by sticking a few L.P ram sinks on it :laugh:

    It is such a tiny thing so it's no surprise.

    Yeah AMD really cheaped out on the reference sink for the 5770 whilst it does have a vapour chamber it's just to smalll.

    They could of easily made the heatsink about 40-50% bigger.

    Hell I'm tempted to ruin my warranty cutting up the shroud so I can put something better in there.

    whoa thats some months ago hehe

    i sold it, cause i needed a laptop for the study's , but then that got cancelled due to not enough people attending.

    so i sold the laptop, and got a Q9550 from KieX, and a maximus II formula + the other things you can see in my system specs ;)

    so yeah

    and next week i should get a new case and new monitor :)

    maybe a Raven02, FT02B, or the Phantom

    not sure yet, still have a week to find the right one

    im thinking it should have room for 1 or 2 dual rads, as i wanna get some WC for it sometime in the near future

    or i could get a used case, like a TJ07 or 800D
